  4. Bedlingtonshire Community High School Updated

    Entry under History in Wikipedia states :- 'It was founded in 1926 as Bedlington Secondary School for the areas of Bedlingtonshire, Ashington and Newbiggin, being built next to Bedlington railway station. Subsequently it became Bedlington Grammar School, before turning comprehensive in 1974. It gained Maths and Computing College status in 2009.
    I would add - the Secondary Modern School merged with the Grammar School to create the High School. The new build + the old grammar school remained until a new High School was built, on the existing grounds, and opened in 2016.

  5. Humford Mill Waterworks & Swimming Baths Updated

    Historically, Humford, a tiny hamlet, consisted of only two houses on two separate sites – the Waterworks that were later converted into 'Humford Open Air Swimming Baths' and now the area is part of the Bedlington Country Park Local Nature Reserve.

  8. Bedlington Station (Sleekburn) 1st School, started pre 1850. Updated

    Info from Rootsweb online genealogy forum :- 'Sleekburn had a school from at least 1842. This is supported by entries in the Methodist records by a local preacher who stated that he preached in the new Board School in that year. Evidently there are no surviving records to indicate when the School was opened. The School was of course built by the Colliery Owner, more so to keep his workers happy and content.. It appears that the School closed in 1941 and was taken over and used as a County Library.

  9. Bedlington Gateway Features Updated

    In 2017 four gateway features were chosen for their association with Bedlington. All are inextricably linked either by their commercial, religious or social heritage to the town. They have all been placed at strategic points to give anyone coming into the town by car or bus the maximum view point and all carry the adage "Welcome to Bedlington".

  18. Sch. near Bells Place - Hollymount Hall - 1896 Updated

    I have been creating an Album, on this site, for each of the schools in the Bedlington area. Whilst looking at an 1896 map of Bedlington around the area of Hollymout Hall & Bell's Place I noticed there was a 'Sch.' identified. I have not found any further info, on the www, about this school. I have not checked the historical records held at the Woodhorn Museum. The label 'Sch.' does not appear on the 1920 map but the label 'Misn. Rm.' appears to have taken it's place.

    Mum, Elizabeth `Rhoda` Thompson, 3rd from right, 1 row from front, b.1925 lived at Whitsun Grove, Park Road. Not sure but I am assuming she went to Whitley Memorial School.
